with the santorum headquarters heading south. when we return, michael steele, msnbc's coverage of super tuesday continues in just a moment. >> big news tonight, mitt romney the apparent winner the ohio republican primary tonight. he won a close victory over rick santorum in the buckeye state. michael steele is with us from washington, and joan walsh is with us from san francisco. it's like the afternoon out there in san francisco. >> yes. >> and there was a comparison to david and goliath, and of course in the bibl war had an interesting result. david won. but tonight david lost, and not as good a story in ohio. >> well, it is not as good a story, but an interesting story. i think it was a terrible night for mitt romney, chris, because we did look at the night looking at a possible night where he could not clinch it obviously, but he could steal some momentum, and he could start to look inevitable if he had a big win in ohio, and took tennessee which people were saying was possible, so for him to walk away with this and to continue the conversation with michael from earlier, when people compare
and michael steele is chairman of the republican national party and an msnbc political analyst. let's see how long we agree. there are several possible outcomes. there's two states. how many outcomes can there be from the votes tonight in mississippi and alabama. first, let's say santorum wins both tonight. if that happens, that means newt gets blown out of the race, i think. and santorum secures the position of clearly number-one challenger to mitt romney. let's stop. here's another possibility. gingrich could win both tonight. he's from that area. he's from georgia. that could hit santorum, which helps romney. it keeps him in the race. third, you could have a gingrich/santorum split tonight. each one winning a state. if that happens, no big changes. finally, romney could take one of the states, say mississippi. that's big for romney because if he wins mississippi and newt wins alabama, that's very bad for santorum and very good for romney. that's my view. let's go through your thinking. >> i agree with that. >> all that? >> i agree those are the basic four scenarios. i guess i agree with th
democrats. michael steel is a political analyst. and joan walsh is an msnbc analyst. let's start on the reaction. it seems we know that most voters are women. we keep forgetting that. obviously, there's more men out there talking all the time. that's just a fact of life. they are out there talking. and women, of course, just quietly vote. and they make -- i don't think they are single issue voters, but they have concerns that men don't have. they are more concerned with health care, social security, medicare. they take care of older parents and worry about themselves. there's like one guy in the old folks home. he has big ears and he's very funny. but there's a lot of women there. men say with any luck, i won't need social security. but joan, on the issue of these issues like contraception and birth control and abortion rights, they do ring -- here's my suggestion. it's about the question, does this candidate care about people like me? the fundamental political question. >> right. but men are asking this question too because i think the thing that rush limbaugh did is make a lot

:00 eastern tonight. here tonight, director howard feinman. and michael steele. both msnbc political analysts. and malika henderson. we've got brand new exit poll information out of illinois and the illinois primary voters. we asked which candidate would most likely beat barack obama? not surprisingly, nearly all of romney voters, 93%, said they thought their guy was most electable. but 28% of santorum voters said they saw him beating obama. howard, speak of sports, that means people would rather vote for the guy, at least in some locations, they deeply believe in rather than the guy in november. >> i think some of those people buy santorum's argument, that you have to solidify the base, and if the base isn't really excited, isn't ready to walk through walls, then that's a weak position to be in against the president. >> tweedledum and tweedledee argument. does it work? they're too close in the end to president and the moderate republican, former governor of massachusetts? in the end their too close to excite the public? >> i think there's some truth to that. i know that's a fear for a lot of
